Sponsor and Attendee Testimonials

Robert Jackson

“We met a lot of amazing people at the I.CON conference from all across the country. NAIOP conferences are great places to engage with a broad swath of the industry in a meaningful way.”

- Bob Jackson, Executive Vice President, Retired, The Rockefeller Group

Christina Buhl

“The I.CON conference attracted many big names in the industry. We were able to connect with many clients in a short time.”

- Christina Buhl, Industrial Equity Sales, Eastdil Secured

John Grossman

“The best thing about this year’s I.CON event was the exceptional gathering of industry leaders. It was very well attended and provided us with terrific opportunities to meet with industrial decision-makers in a personal setting.”

- John Grossman, Senior Vice President, Millie & Severson, Inc.

Pat Feeney

“I feel that the 48 hours invested in I.CON events is a very worthwhile investment for an industrial broker. The information offered is always high level and current as far as our industry is concerned and the networking is very valuable as well. The bottom line is you are away from your market for only 48 hours and the effort, money invested and time spent is well worth the investment.”

- Pat Feeney, SIOR, Senior Vice President, CBRE
